John Henry Foley (1818-1874), R. A.
Royal Institution of Great Britain
Albemarle Street, London W1
Foley shows Faraday with his famous electro-magnetic induction ring in one hand, while his other hand is raised as if he is in the midst of explaining it. The statue stands imposingly at the foot of the institution's main staircase (with its splendid ironwork), as if to welcome visitors.
